Yeah, but your down in Vancouver, if I remember correctly.
Correct! And I would drive back up that way to have someone tune again if I had to. I drove all the way up there to Hobart when jon was around.....

I normally don't post in "local" section... actually, I haven't... LOL!

I'm in the Seattle Area myself.
Just wanted to "shout out" to ya'll in the PNW.

I have an 86' LX I've been working on for a few years now. It's very close to making some shake-down runs for tuning. I'm currently having a camshaft and carburetor designed and the engine goes in permanently. Maybe a few engine dyno runs to make tuning it easier, but I don't know anyone local that I trust yet.

You got pictures of your build?

It's odd... I see thousands of Mustangs in my area per week, yet very few posts here.

My name is Dana... pleased to see you here.

I have "checking" springs and adjustable pushrods if you want to borrow.
Also have a degree wheel if you want to "dial-in" your camshaft.

Cheers,
Dana

I barely ever see any V8 mustangs in the Bellevue-Sammaish Area, and hardly-ever any Foxes
(not that theres anything wrong with non-v8 mustangs, everyone has their preferences)

They DO NOT mess around in Bellevue! I have been asked to leave for driving an old domestic WITHOUT collector plates:eeek: I work at Tacoma Mall and there are LOTS of Mustangs but only a few v8 foxbodies .The 2 that interest me the most are a Granny that drives a flawless red LX notch automatic and a straight but badly faded 86 GT with phone dials and flowmasters,driven by a guy who works at Sears tire/service.

We don't see many Foxes here in Algona either. The mustangs we do see are normally the V6 later 2000's models. Or the SN-95 models with a 6-er and someone behind the wheel who doesn't appreciate it as a Mustang. I've got a similar problem with my Bronco, most of the people I've seen with one don't appreciate it like I do.

347HO. Sorry to take so long to reply. I did not realize this seemed to be a pretty popular thread. I will put some pics up soon. I am doing all of my own work except for reworking the heads and block. I would like to meet up with some of you guys like was mentioned. I am new to the area.

Having a get together would be awesome, and basically any weekend would work for me.

Also heres a not great photo of my car; say hello if you see it :)

Any Saturday or Sunday is good for me also. Just let me know. Here is a pic of my current stable and the fox (older pic, not so shiny now). Thinking of selling the fox, have a transaction pending for something else, more to follow:

It would be cool to meet up one day, however I work graveyard and my only day off is Wednesday night. But if I slept early enough I could wake up and make it. Money is tight so it may take a while but I'd like to make an appearance.

Hey guys,
New to the forum, not new to mustangs, but new to foxes. Picked up an 89 LX project. I'd be down to get together and see what everyone is running.

I'm in Grapeview
